Trailer For Indian Noir SUNRISE Plunges You Into Hypnotic Darkness
One of ScreenAnarchy's favorite discoveries at the Busan International Film Festival last October, Partho Sen-Gupta's Indian noir Sunrise is going to Tribeca next month and has just released a new trailer. We're happy to be the first media outlet to offer a peak at this terrific addition to India's new wave of electric crime thrillers.
Partho's film, which falls somewhere in between Nicholas Winding Refn's Only God Forgives and Anurag Kashyap's Ugly, offers a hypnotic and distressing look at the underworld of child trafficking and prostitution in Mumbai, through one detective's inability to move on from the loss of his own daughter.
Thought-provoking, stylish and accessible, Sunrise packs twice the punch of most Indian films in about half the running time. Check out our BIFF review here and be sure to check it out in New York or whenever it (hopefully) finds its way close to you.
